The program is 5x a week and he gets to ride a bus to and from school. His favorite part I think. The class is small, only 6 students right now, but their capacity is 10. Three times a week a specialist works with the class, either as a group or in the case of the speech pathologist one-on-one.
I know he is not the typical special needs student and everybody keeps reassuring me that it's nothing I've done as a parent, but I am as happy as he is. I think boys, Andrew in particular, can use a little extra push when it comes to school. I think this extra year is going to benefit him now and in the long run. Another benefit is the time I get with Moo, Andrew had me all to himself for 18 months and I agree with those who say "if it wasn't for breastfeeding, my 2nd child would of never been held". Poor baby! Charlotte took the transistion harder than Andrew and me. Silly girl, she still sometimes cries when he gets on the bus. Today though, after he was gone she said "Let's go shopping!" LOL Loving the girl time we get now. And there are definitely no delays in her speech! She is totally a (shoe-loving!) girl.

Let cool. (Took less than five minutes.)Unwind the ribbon and have a litte fun playing with the coils. :)Now this part is where I deviated from a lot of instructions I found: They say to wrap an elastic around the ribbons and hot glue down...well, my daughter showed me the errors of that method. I got her all ready to go somewhere, and in the car ride over she pulled out each individual ribbon from both pigtails. Hmph. Lil Stinker. So I took a needle and thread and went through all ribbons numerous times before hot gluing down.
(Excuse the model (me!), Miss Charlotte is with my sister for a few days, hence the time to craft!)

Sorting the candies, and banishing the "reject" ones, lol. My helpers (they ate the "rejects"): At first, I was going to do one row of hearts...then I liked two rows... But I love the way 3 rows look:
This V-day picture was taken 2 yrs ago. :( My daughter was only 1 month old, Andrew was 2.25 yrs. :)
I got this idea from a Too Cute Tuesday post on Funky Polkadot Giraffe. When you click on the thumbnail it takes you to Simply Crafty. There's another version on a blog I already follow, Yesterday on Tuesday. Mine is a combo of the two.YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
This is the base of my next Valentine's craft...but what to write on the side...my husband suggested Be Mine...I love it B. Mine :D.

I find it funny that the youngest is the most alert and happy (used to those late nights, I supppose) and it decreases as you go up in age. My sleepy lil boy crashed around...10:30 pm, I'd say. :) Charlotte crashed sometime after 1 am. I left at 2 am, and my sister was just then headed to bed with two still very awake boys. (Kalvin was dozing on and off all evening.)
My only resolution (which applies to MANY, MANY areas of my life) is to GET ORGANIZED. :)
Happy New Year 2011 everyone!
